Buffet dinner and a movie for under $35
Govinda's Darlinghurst
The setting and the food

Located on trendy Darlinghurst Road, Govindas is not your average vegetarian Indian restaurant; it is also a little cinema with a big twist. You can melt into comfort after your delicious meal with a reclining movie experience. You'll be so relaxed it will be difficult not to fall asleep. They screen three or four different new release films each day.

The place is actually a Hare Krishna meditation, yoga and sacred chanting centre so it has that bohemian style with a touch of class. They even host vegetarian cooking classes and various workshops.

Current screenings

When it comes to the buffet even hard core carnivores won't miss their meat. They'll be too busy enjoying the creamy curries, crunchy baked potatoes, crispy pappadums, light soups, tofu salad, chunky kofta balls and penne pasta. The deep-fried cauliflower is a must try. The food isn't spicy but chilli lovers have the option of adding heat and there are plenty of condiments for extra flavour.

There isn't much in the way of dessert, so if you are the mood for a sweet treat, head down the street to Gelato Messina for a taste of Sydney's best Ice-cream.

The buffet

Govindas is great for dates and group gatherings. The staff are always helpful and payment is easy as the buffet is just $22.80 each; get your money's worth and go back for seconds. Remember to make a booking on weekends as the place can fill up. Also, parking can be a nightmare in this area, so you either have to know the good spots or take public transport.
